I’ll begin with a photo of the Tawas Point Light as it’s one of my favorites from our visit to Tawas Point Beach.
When we first arrived, though, the weather seemed mediocre and almost gloomy.
Rebecca waded into Lake Huron far enough to dampen the bottom of her shorts, and then she decided to change into her swim clothes.
The sun emerged!
Tawas Point is a curved strip of land which juts out into Lake Huron along the east coast of Michigan, forming Tawas Bay. It has been called the “Cape Cod of the Midwest.”
Sigh. Clouds gathered to mask the sun again.
Rebecca brought along her football, and Dad consented to play catch.
A few rain drops fell gently on our heads, but even I was prepared with a hat:)
I walked down the beach and caught the sky brightening a bit.
On a September Wednesday with public schools in session, Tawas beach was mostly deserted besides our family (that blob of people you see in the distance).
As we prepared to leave the sun peaked out again.
We could see the rain clouds moving on.
How I wished we could have stayed longer, but Christian and Rebecca were loath to miss their weekly robotics meeting. At least I was blessed with 2 hours of soothing wave music!
